She felt like a queen with sweet memory and life nestled in her fortress of lush poetry and light a place of passion where the world could not go as she forged on with sweet memories and a loving novel bestowed Of tattered pages strewn in moments of flowers and lace where words came with delicate emotion and could not be replaced She fought to relive a time when all was fair just one more moment where her loving song was shared Upon this solemn silence in hushed light of loving dream she placed the pen and paper at the edge of life redeemed And on that final day she came home to be fulfilled as she lay dying in feathered down she found him once again..... _______________________________________________

    Oh la...a beautifully touching write, Rick. Feels as though to comment, one should do so in whispers.:) There is no rhyme in the last verse, givng it the feeling of fading away. Strange sounds as I read this piece...I hear thunder far off , sounding as though the stomachs of the clouds, are rumbling. Love this write,will fav it for wishes, Mikki
